After the Volkswagen exposé in 2015 and the Panama Papers scandal, it’s safe to say the world needs caring financial professionals. It’s easy to have that ‘lightbulb moment’ idea, but not so easy to implement sustainable cost planning. That’s why the three-year International Financial Management and Control programme trains you how to become the beating heart of any business and improve the world you live in.
International Financial Management and Control has a four-year and a three-year programme, the latter differing only in its duration and study intensity. To qualify for this three-year programme, you will need the equivalent of a higher level Dutch VWO diploma.
You have a Dutch diploma
To begin the three-year IFMC bachelor degree programme, you should have a VWO diploma with the appropriate profile.
IFMC is intensive. You’ll need to be highly motivated and independent to take this programme. You’ll have to do an interview to determine if you have the right qualities as part of the admission process. If you can’t attend an interview in person, we’ll set up a telephone or Skype interview. Before we can decide on your eligibility, we’ll need to assess your secondary school certificate. To make sure your certificate is evaluated fairly, we work with NUFFIC, an organisation that specialises in the assessment of international education qualification.
Bachelors candidates who are educated in the Netherlands, UK, Ireland, USA, Canada (Quebec only when the education language is English), Australia, New Zealand, South Africa or Malta, or students holding a diploma (including English as an exam subject) stated on this diploma list, don’t need to take an English proficiency test.
All other prospective students are required to hand in a valid and sufficient language test.
Please check our entry requirements for more information.
If you completed your prior education in another country than those listed above, you might still qualify for exemption if:
- you have an American or International High School Diploma, or
- you have an European or International Baccalaureate Diploma.
Please contact the Enrolment Centre and ask for details.

An open day is a great way to get inspired, see our campus and hear from students, lecturers and our team of study advisors. You can also attend a few presentations by our lecturers, which will help you get into a creative and global mind-set.
Student for a day
Shadow a current IFMC student and experience what it’s like to study at THUAS. You will join discussions with existing workgroups and attend useful lectures. Lectures, for example, that could help you decide whether your main interest lies in international accounting, or would you be better off giving an acclaimed company like Unilever financial advice for one of its holdings?
